I know, I know, pride goeth before a fall. ;-)
I am proud of myself though. I've had PatternMaker (cross stitch) software for years and I'm good at using it but I'd never attempted one aspect of it before. I have created my own font! It's a back-stitch font. Now, when I want to chart a saying, names, etc., all I have to do is type in the program!
Since I'm working on my own version of a Mother's Tree, this is going to be great! I was inspired to do a Mother's Tree when I saw the one from Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum. Her idea was great, but the font was definitely masculine and I couldn't bring myself to stitch it.
So far, I have the tree charted (my own) and now I can get to work on inputing the names and dates that I'll need. If it looks as good as I'm anticipating, then I will eventually make the chart available for purchase.
